    Saw this design on eBay by Bruce Wei Arts in Vietnam who has made me customs ukes and bass ukes, it was a tenor and I asked if he could make it a 23" scale bass uke, it came out great, $825 shipped to Los Angeles, plus $100 by Eric's Guitar Shop in Van Nuys, CA to add a pickup and preamp I had.

  9. The back of my avatar bass, a '78 Musicmaster body that was trashed and brought back from the dead. Sorry it's a little blurry.

    along with the modding i've done for the past several years i got into making customized neck plates for the backs of my project axes.
    - aluminum plates, painted white
    - plate-sized decal
    - apply the decal + a bazillion coats of poly (maybe 4-5 coats, TBH)


    anyway, the backsides of three of my instruments:
